For systems which automatically generate address lists for replies to messages, the following recommendations are made:o The "Sender" field mailbox should be sent notices of any problems in transport or delivery of the originalm essages. If there is no "Sender" field, then the "From" field mailbox should be used.o The "Sender" field mailbox should NEVER be used automatically, in a recipient's reply message.o If the "Reply-To" field exists, then the reply should go to the addresses indicated in that field and not to the address(es) indicated in the "From" field.But, not all mail servers obey this rule. Some mail servers will bounce it back to the FROM address.

Hope this helps
Thank you for the explanation Rajesh. Are there any recommendations or best practices as to how to handle the auto replies while still using a personal email but not overloading inboxes?
